the brown part looks like some square cap shading over the whole building... the 'old' building gives me a 'chinese feel'... but its sad that the old building could never be seen again...but again, the new reclad thing really looks brillant... looks very modern... and the real building looks so much better then the model...

jus a thought... why is glass so often used as clading in alot of buildings nowadays? back then, no cladding was often seen, only 'concert cladding'....as in the context of Singapore... not too sure abt other countries...

I guess it looked suitable for its time, when the surroundings were almost like slums, but it just looks like an eyesore today thats why it has been recladded. At least we know its still the same 'person' in 'disguise'
